At the epicenter

That’s what our house is…this week, I am too tired. And the dog (Samantha) became ill (shampooing the living room carpet is in our near future), and then Al’s cold took a turn for the worse, and he has been either sleeping or out at the range, taking his volunteer shifts because, it seems, that’s easier than finding a replacement. (On the bright side, the range has extended its hours, in that the 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. shift has become 10 a.m.-Noon and Noon-2 p.m., which means that on Mondays, Al will be working two hours instead of three.) None of the housework is getting done, we are eating canned soup, block cheese, watermelon and omelets with strawberry preserves. We have had to tempt Samantha to eat; she’s cut back from three meals a day to two, sometimes one. Last night and this morning, she’s finally more energetic and interacting again.

My interests center on sleeping, as do Samantha’s and Al’s. Which means a clear mind and a relaxed body and the Midnight Rain Shower environmental track running 24/7. Maybe a little louder, tonight, since Al’s coughing woke me up often, last night.

  1. I’m sorry to hear about the relapse and about Samantha getting sick. Your being tired makes sense. I hope you are remaining healthy. It’s been single digits here. I imagine you are more used to that than I. I hope everyone gets better!


    • Oddly, the temperature here is 21°F, with a high tomorrow to be 32°. The mist/fog was condensing on the auto windshield and freezing when Al left the car outside. Samantha has decided she needs my attentions, again. Last time, half an hour ago, it was because she had forgotten her pet Flea (dog toy) outside in the snow. Thanks for the good wishes.


And you?
